DJI Intelligent Flight Battery Functions
1. Battery Level Display: The LED indicators display the current battery level.
2. Battery Life Display: The LEDs display the current battery power cycle.
3. Auto-Discharging Function: To prevent swelling, the battery automatically discharges to below 65% of total power when it is idle for more than ten days. It takes around two days to discharge the battery to 65%. It is normal to feel moderate heat being emitted from the battery during the discharge process. Discharge thresholds can be set in the DJI GO app.
4. Balanced Charging: Automatically balances the voltage of each battery cell when charging.
5. Overcharge Protection: Charging automatically stops when the battery is fully charged.
6. Temperature Detection: The battery will only charge when the temperature is between 5°C (41°F) and 40°C (104°F).
7. Over Current Protection: The battery stops charging when high amperage (more than 8 A) is detected.
8. Over Discharge Protection: To prevent over-discharge damage, discharging automatically stops when the battery voltage reaches 12 V.
9. Short Circuit Protection: Automatically cuts the power supply when a short circuit is detected.
10. Battery Cell Damage Protection: The DJI GO app displays a warning message when a damaged battery cell is detected.
11. Battery Error History: Browse the battery error history in the DJI GO app.
12. Sleep Mode: To save power, the battery enters sleep mode after 20 minutes of inactivity.
13. Communication: Information pertaining to the battery’s voltage, capacity, current, etc. is transmitted to the aircraft’s main controller.
- Refer to Phantom 4 Intelligent Flight Battery Safety Guidelines before use. Users take full responsibility for all operations and usage.
- In cold environments, insert the battery into the battery compartment and allow the aircraft for approximately 1-2 minutes to warm up before taking off.
Always turn off the battery before inserting it or removing it from the Phantom 4. Never insert or remove a battery when it is turned on.

Camera and Gimbal
The on-board camera uses the 1/2.3 inch CMOS sensor to capture video (up to 4096x2160p at 24fps or 4K at up to 30 fps with the Phantom 4 and 12 megapixel stills. You may choose to record the video in either MOV or MP4 format. Available picture shooting modes include burst, continuous, and time-lapse mode. A live preview of what the camera sees can be monitored on the connected mobile device via the DJI GO app.
Camera Micro SD Card Slot
To store your photos and videos, insert the Micro SD card into the slot, as shown below, before turning on the Phantom 4. The Phantom 4 comes with a 16 GB Micro SD card and supports Micro SD cards up to 64 GB. A UHS-1 Micro SD card is recommended due to their fast read and write speeds allowing you to save high-resolution video data
